Driving from Madrid to Granada

I'm planning for our family holiday for next December and thinking of going to Granada from Madrid. How is the driving condition between the 2 cities and how long will it take? Is stop over recommended? For information, I've never driven in Spain before, although I've driven in other foreign countries during our visits before.

Is the winter weather in Granada like that in UK?

Be aware that during winter there may be snow in the mountain passes, which are very high. So you need to have chains in the car.

Several years ago I was driving to Granada and at one high mountain pass, I was able to drive through only by the skin of my teeth because there was so much snow and I had no chains.
